Every year, at the end of July — beginning of August, Ursa Travel club heads out to Maine to pick blueberries and cool down from the summer heat of New York City. The travel plan usually includes trekking and camping in Acadia National Park (most scenic park on the East Coast), and lots of great food: Maine is widely known for its blueberries, lobsters, seafood, ice cream and beer.

Here is one more story that I heard from Mario Blackwolf, a good friend of mine. I tried my best to preserve the original storytelling style. Before I begin, I would like to clarify what a shaman is: he is the spiritual leader of a tribe, who has the ability to heal not only bodies, but also the souls of his people; he is the guardian of traditions and spiritual heritage, as well as a guide into the realm of the spirits.

Dina Ostrovsky’s review:

“Today, we are finishing the “Dolphin Dance” tour. We accomplished everything that was planned: we reached the most remote areas of the Big Island, descended into the mysterious and secluded Waipio Valley, visited the highest point of the island — the 4000m tall Mauna Kea, and got to do some shamanic rituals on the lava. Most importantly, we got to communicate with dolphins! The 10-day trip stayed in our memories like a whole different lifetime, saturated with adventures, the bright colors of Polynesia, tropical fruit flavors and the smell of Hawaiian flowers. Each day was filled with amazing experiences, beautiful sights and pure pleasure…

Tamara’s review (New York):

“Dear Dina and Denis, thank you so much for this amazing tour. We didn’t just see new interesting places, we got an opportunity to learn a lot of things spiritually as well. We got a chance to escape the daily commotion and witness a beautiful world, full of untainted thoughts and possibilities. The morning yoga session under Denise’s guidance has opened a new great potential of the body and spirit deep within us. The mineral hot springs that we got to enjoy both in the morning after yoga sessions and at night after hiking the mountains all day have allowed us to keep our minds and bodies powerful, yet relaxed. Out expectations for this trip were high, but the reality has surpassed all expectations. A big thank you to Katya and Lena. We have learned a lot from them. A big thank thank you to all the young participants of this tour. They amazed us all with their imagination and bravery…”

This tour was held in conjunction with our Moscow partner — the Alpindustria adventure team.

Alpindustria Adventure Team members (led by Nadezhda Novikova) have come to North America in search of adventures. Their route went through California, Nevada and Arizona. To us, this is isn’t just a new and interesting route, or a whole new area to trek and travel. This will also be our first “descent” down into a canyon, since we usually do trekking and climbing.

Alpindustria team’s review


Looking from above, the jungle of Costa Rica looks just like a magical carpet, singing with the voices of a thousand birds and filled with exotic floral fragrances. Few manage to climb up to the cloud level to build an abode for visitors that are thirsting for peace and healing effects of the mountains. But it is exactly what the kind-hearted and energetic owners of the «Farm of Life» center did. Brian and Jody (a couple from America) have just recently opened their lodge in the mountains. It’s located near the coastal town of Dominical, known internationally as a surfer town. «Farm of Life» is a small center built with love for, and in cooperation with nature. Elegant bungalows sitting on edge of the mountain are constructed from environmentally friendly materials, and in addition to the breathtaking views, have all the necessary amenities. Читать далее
